Last Saturday, the city of Guadalajara in Mexico celebrated its 477th festival. In the crowded streets, a young boy with a physical disability was helped by his dog, who pushed his wheelchair for him!
In the streets of Guadalajara, Mexico, being disabled can be a nightmare: between pavements that are too high and dented roads, people in wheelchairs can struggle to get around. Last Saturday, the city was hosting its 477th festival, and the streets were crowded. To get through, Owen, a young boy in a wheelchair, could count on the help of his dog!
Doggie to the rescue
Stunned passers-by saw Owen in a wheelchair... being pushed by his dog! The nice dog named Leo was trained by the young man's uncle so he could help his young owner.
A festival-goer posted the video on social networks and it went viral. It shows the well-trained dog on its hind legs, pushing the wheelchair without much effort, visibly comfortable.
After guide dogs for the blind and those who help the deaf and hard of hearing, here is another great example of what dogs can help accomplish for owners with disabilities!
